Manny Ramirez is no longer playing in the big leagues. Instead he is overseas in Tawian suiting up for the EDA Rhinos, and on Tuesday night he gave the Rhinos a win with an extra inning home run.
What stood out about this home run were a few things. First of all, it took Manny 30 seconds to round the bases. Then when he finally makes it home after his triumphant trot, it looks like he misses home plate (watch at 1:27 and tell me what you think).
Next, it was the announcer. He was going crazy, just like everyone else in attendance, but this time he had been working on his English a bit. As Manny trotted around the base paths, the announcer used up what might be all the English he knows.
Anyway, the video is below. Watch it and enjoy.
By the way, he is tied for the league lead in home runs.
